My self-summary
I think all I need to be happy are friends that share challenging activites. I have such great memories from all the traveling I've done that I hope any person I would date would have the confidence and open-mindedness to try new things regardless of how intimidating they may initially seem.
I've been going to the Rockies every winter since I was 6 to ski/snowboard. I've done back-country backpacking in Glacier National Park and Banff (Canada) in the past few years. Last summer I traveled to Caye Caulker, Belize for 8 days of scuba diving.
I believe in living a healthy, balanced life, but that doesn't mean I don't like a late night dance party ensuing from a night of poor decision making.
In addition to eating healthy I actually enjoy working out. Recently I've stopped lifting weights and have found activities to keep me healthy; don't even want to begin to imagine life without my weekly yoga class. In the past year and a half I started participating in triathlons; every season brings a new sport, from climbing to snowboarding.
What I’m doing with my life
Does anyone get depressed when filling out this section? Like, "wow, I'm doing nothing with my life otherwise this section should be easy."
Yeah, me neither.
Actually though, I've been a teacher for almost ten years now, amazing how fast time moves. I value my career and the opportunities I get to make a difference in other's lives.
I’m really good at
Lots of stuff. Being able to say lots of stuff is a huge confidence booster after that whole "what are you doing with your life?" debacle.
The first things people usually notice about me
The unicorns on my t-shirt.
Hard to answer this one without feeling arrogant. I've been told I have nice eyes and a good smile though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love Vonnegut, don't watch much tv or see many movies.
Read as much as I can. National Geographic and Sierra Club are two favorite magazines.
Tons of other authors, and wouldn't even know where to begin my list.
The six things I could never do without
My bike
Running shoes
My other bikes
The idea that one day I will have enough time for a dog, and get to run with it everyday
A snowboard, and skis
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Stupid answers to stupid, or not so stupid questions.
Recently...what is my next workout, since I've been doing so many workouts for an Ironman.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, biking around the city.
Experiencing great CMA parties or other fun stuff with fun people.
Maybe a yoga class with friends,
but always making the most of my time and this city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was wearing a pink shirt to school and a student told me an interesting fact. 100% of women think men who wear pink are manly, but only 50% of men who wear pink like women. Then she asked me what 50% I fell into...burn.
You should message me if
You think men who wear pink are manly, and if you think I'm in the 50% you would be interested in.

You're active and enjoy a healthy life style.

You aren't afraid to try new things, in fact you enjoy the challenge that comes with trying new things and you enjoy the idea of providing that challenge and growth to someone else.

You're open minded, genuine and can tell the difference between times to let loose and times to be serious.

You keep yourself busy, but understand there needs to be a balance between hard work and play.
